Introduction

Sapphire has exceptional physical (optical, mechanical, dielectric and thermal) and chemical properties along with superior radiation stability. For this reason sapphire is in high demand for many Scientific, Industrial and Military applications. Sapphire has orientations and the following picture shows the structure of the primary planes of the sapphire crystal corresponding to the structure system of sapphire. Shown in this Figure, the C– plane is (0001), A– plane is (1120) and R– plane (1012).

Product Description

Sapphire has exceptional physical (optical, mechanical, dielectric and thermal) and chemical properties along with superior radiation stability. For this reason sapphire is in high demand for many Scientific, Industrial and Military applications.
Sapphire has orientations and the following picture shows the structure of the primary planes of the sapphire crystal corresponding to the structure system of sapphire. Shown in this Figure, the C– plane is (0001), A– plane is (1120) and R– plane (1012).There are many different methods for growing sapphire

    The most common are:
  • Kyropoulos (HEM) method
  • Stepanov (EFG) method
  • Czochralski method
  • Bagdasarov (Horizontal directed crystallization) method
  • Verneuil method
